This past year, record breaking rainfall was recorded for most of North Carolina. There’s no doubt about it, the Carolina soil is saturated! According to Spectrum News Central, Raleigh-Durham, Fayetteville, Asheville, and Wilmington all set precipitation records for the year. Rain is typically welcomed in this Southern state, but when does too much wet weather become a stressor to tree health?
In the last few months, our Arborist Representatives have seen a surplus of uprooted trees across Charlotte, Concord, Raleigh-Durham and the Greensboro area. Homeowners and property owners are seeing firsthand the cause and effect of weather playing into the overall health of local trees. Across North Carolina we’ve seen uprooted white oaks, pines, and maples just to name a few.

The homeowner had noticed that her arborvitae, which is typically a hardy evergreen, was quickly gaining brown leaves. Sure enough, signs of tree decay were clearly visible across her landscape.
